    I frequently need to look at a contact file on my phone or computer without making a call or sending a text or email. I can't figure out how to get Cortana to only open a contact.

    Cortana will respond to "open people" and bring me to the People app (computer or phone). Then I have to search for the contact I want from there. Most annoying.

    Any suggestions on how I can get this to work? Would seem logical that since Cortana can dial or text a contact, it could also just open the contact card. I don't find the command for it.

    Just say the contact name, slide to the right to see the phone search.

    Thanks for your help. I wish that worked, but Cortana merely opens a web search for the name I ask, which is in my contacts/people app. ** Sigh **
